'Roseanne's' Sara Gilbert confirms she's a lesbian

Former "Roseanne" star Sara Gilbert is returning to TV as one of the celebrity mothers on the panel of the new fall daytime chat show “The Talk.”

What sets her apart from the other women, however, is that Gilbert’s kids have two mommies.

While promoting the new show at a Television Critics Association press event in L.A. on Wednesday, Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her TV producer partner Allison Adler, confirmed that she is a lesbian.

Speaking about her sexuality, she said, “I don’t think it will be a problem. I don’t ever really think of things as ‘out ‘or ‘in.’ I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them and share when it seems right.”

Until now, Gilbert, 35, has not publicly discussed her private life. In fact, the CBS press release for “The Talk” mentions the husbands of co-hosts Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, and Marissa Jaret Winokur, but omits Adler. That was Gilbert’s decision.

“This is a talk show, so obviously I’m going to be discussing my life more, and I felt that the first place I wanted to do it wasn’t in a CBS press release,” she explained to reporters at the TCA event. “It just seemed impersonal, and I felt like I’d rather come in person and talk to you about all that stuff here.”

    It doesn't surprise me at all. But why referring to her as Rosanne's' Sarah G. Wasn't that a sitcom in a former millennium ? Should most people know her from her already tough role in it.? Why not telling us that she's Lesbie Winkle in BBT ?

    kind of knew she was gay ..... sorry ..... just like rosie and ellen ... there is something about them that gives them away as being gay. don't care for ellen cause she always has attractive females on her show and she probably gets a big "hard on" from that. i never cared for her humor, but i see many people do. if i sound prejudice ... i'm not .... i just know they are gay, and i don't care for that lifestyle for anyone.

      I believe there will be a time in the future where men are no longer needed to help make babies, no sperm required, but still may be very well desired as it is the "natural" way of reproduction in mammals. Scientists have made this occur in mice by combining the nucleus of one female’s egg with that of another. The female offspring survived to adulthood and now has babies of her own. It can definitely happen in humans some day.

    Sara Gilbert is a wonderful actress and has been in many things. ER, 24, Simpson's, just to name a few! She's been in several movies as well and has gotten a plaque on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is sad that she has to even mention anything different about her partner but in all honestly, I don't think this has been an issue so much for most of the world. We love who we love and raise our families and the most important thing is to be respectful, responsible and loving. That is it. We shouldn't have to 'explain'. I only wish Sara had mentioned her partner when the other actors mentioned their husbands. It would help to lesson the gap between straights and gays and be one more move in the direction that we need to go – that is to be linked equally with our chosen partners just as marriages are linked in the site of all.

    You know people in TV world know they have no real talent. The only way they get someone to their new movie or read their new book or watch their brief talk show is to COME OUT OF THE CLOSET (again in this case), or say they were beaten as a child, or had an affair with their daddy, or gets arrested for drugs prior to movie release. People, go outside and do something with you kids or family and forget these stupid people. I'm not saying they are all stupid, but you know what I am saying, becasue you are not stupid.

    A) "Gilbert, confirmed that she is a lesbian." There's a shocker.
    B) "Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her TV producer partner Allison Adler."Does one of them have more gear than your standard female? If not, I'd say "with" her partner is a bit of a stretch. But hey, nothing says love is beautiful like store bought sperm and a squirt gun..

      I will be sure pass that along to all those straight couples that needed fertility doctors to help them have children, and all the adopted kids out there. All that really matters in parenting is the act of conception. All the hard work that comes after that doesn't matter, it's just the brief act of mating that counts.

    Though I liked her as a smart mouth brat on Rosanne, I despise her being a lesbian.

    Still, even though I'm anti-gay in the fact that such relationships are immoral, I would like to consider her a friend-who happens to be female-if I knew her privately.

    Since one's personal choices affect society as a whole, then it is absolutely correct she should make this announcement at this time (for the benefit of those who either didn't know or chose to ignore until now). Everyone deserves the right to know how Ms. Gilbert's lifestyle will affect their community.

    I wonder if she'll have her half-sister Melissa on the show.

      Dude, if you are joining the relationship police, you have bigger worries than making sure no one has two mommies. Once you have all the families where Mommy or Daddy beats the kids badly enough to require a trip to the ER dealt with, and once you have found a way to keep people from leaving their infants in the car on hot days, then you can work on some of the less important stuff.

      If too many mommies keeps you awake at night, you don't just have issues, you have a subscription.

    "What sets her apart from the other women, however, is that Gilbert’s kids have two mommies."

    the tone of this article is really juvenile. this might've been shocking in the 80's, but this is 2010. no one cares if she has a wife, a husband, or a harem. having 2 mommies is not shocking. its life for millions of americans whose parents are divorced or remarried.

      A lesbian harem would be news. Don't see many of those in the US, even in "Entertainment-land".

    She's said in the past that she's a mommy and her partner is a mommy. So I don't know why this is news to anyone now?????

    Someone posted "who didn't see that coming". Well, I didn't. But maybe that's because I don't look at people and spend my time wondering about who they like to sleep with. Gay, straight, by....it shouldn't make any difference. But people are so concerned with what other people are doing in their own bedrooms! That's what makes this news.

    I remember reading about her being gay in a magazine article a fews years back... It was an article about the "Roseanne" cast of what they're doing now or whatever... She came out awhile back...

      She came out a while back, but since no one paid attention, she's doing it again because of the new show. In ten years, she'll come out again.

      Being gay is old news really. No one cares one way or the other. All of this coming out should stop.

      Why the nasty comeback? I think JB was just pointing out that most of us already knew she was gay. I honestly thought she "came out" years ago. And who cares? It isn't an issue, or shouldn't be.

    Every show has to have its token. From the list of celebritards on this show I guess they are trying to cover all the bases by pandering to each minority group. My question is: who is representing the transgender community?

      it's the straighties who are the drama queens making issue of it, asking about it, needing to report it. gays don't just wake up and decide to figure out how to get their orientation in the news anymore than you do. put the blame where it belongs. and face it, it's an issue because so many people freak out about it.

      It's important for those who are ignorant to know that there are more gay people around than you might realize...it is more self-empowering than it is self-aggrandizing (and congrats on spelling that correctly). The teens and other people who are closeted/fearful/beat down/destroyed by prejudice can look up to a celebrity like her and realize, "Hey...maybe there isn't anything wrong with me after all." Get over YOURSELF.

    wow, didn't see that coming *sarcasm* I think she confirmed she was a lesbian when she was playing a smart@ss 12 year old on Roseanne... I remember reading this a few years ago though, so its definitely not new, news. Also, why do these "coming out" stories make news?? Guess what, I'm straight! Wheres my coverage!!!!?!?!?

      That's so lame when folks say things like that (Guess what – I'm straight. Where's my coverage). Things change when 'the masses' find out that someone is gay. Kinda like your ignorant reaction – pretending that nothing changes. Some people will automatically dislike her now – others will 'know' that she's going to hell, etc. Don't act like it's no big deal until is IS no big deal!

      Obviousely it is news, or ignorant people like you would not be reading it and posting comments about it. Straight people don't get coverage because people assume everyone is straight, and when they find out they're wrong they freak out. Someday it will not be news. You'll know when that day comes because people will stop reading the stories and posting ignorant comments about them. Obviousely we haven't reached that time yet.

      As to the 'who didn't see that coming' remark – easy to say in retrospect. Of course, it has been kind of known since 2004 at least about Sara, but this is clearly due to her heightened profile. Plus, the public seems to have a short memory, as witnessed by Freddie Mercury and Elton John 'shockers' years after everyone on EARTH knew. I don't actually know who Clay Aiken is, and prefer not to think about Ricky Martin, so can't comment there.
